passionate minority. i was there from the start. i can remember marching, urging president bush to stop the war. i can still remember comforting anti-war activists like cindy sheehan. i met her near president bush's texas ranch. at camp casey. named for her son. he was killed in action in the war. from day one, i didn't agree with the invasion of iraq. but i always knew how important it was to support our troops. especially when they came home. the president talked about it in his state of the union. >> we will keep faith with our veterans. investing in world class care, including mental health care. for our wounded warriors. supporting our military families. giving our veterans the benefits and education and job opportunities that they have earned. >> over 1.1 million americans served in iraq, and over 32,000 returned home with severe combat wounds. it's a big reason why 45% of veterans from iraq and afghanistan are seeking disability assistant. it's a staggering number. the wait time for that help is even worse. on average, it's over 300 days for our newest veterans. our veter
. i saw this one, the war in iraq coming from the first days after 9/11. there were those in the bush administration who saw this as their opportunity. they were helped by war hawks on the outside. the "washington post" op-ped page, the "weekly standard," the new republic" were open billboards for the relentless push toward war. establishment media joining in offering uncritical coverage of the administration line. this is not a good statement about the american press. i'd like to believe my generation, especially those who grow up in maturity to the horror of dishonesty of vietnam would have spoken loudly against the war hawks. few, mostly on the left, did. fewer from the middle. still fewer from the right. what's worse than that in those months of late 2001, 2002, and early 2003 to oppose the war when there was time to stop it, worse yet, the question is motivation, to cause trouble for yourself. even when a whole new vocabulary, wmd, homeland, regime change, freedom fries, coalition of the willing, was being confected and infiltrated into our national dialogue. the mainstream media
killed this morning in explosions across iraq. that's exactly ten years after then president bush announced the u.s. invasion. most of today's attacks were car bombings around baghdad, including one near major government offices and foreign embassies. we're still getting information in on that in terms of casualties and injuries. elizabeth, you first, ten years later, where are we? well, it's a very difficult anniversary. no one remembers this fondly at all. the iraqis certainly don't remember this well. they're not marking this anniversary at all. i also think that the war changed fundamentally the way the united states thinks about war. look at how reluctant the president is right now to intervene in syria in a serious way. look at how reluctant the pentagon was to go to war to intervene in libya. look at how long the afghanistan wars lasted because of what happened in iraq. we're in a very sober place right now. also, we have to remember, nearly 5,000 american men and women killed in uniform killed as a result of this war. i should also -- i should also tell you, i am at this p
accepting of what the bush administration was claiming. so a good example would be, and not everybody is as discerning as you are, a good example, front page story in "the washington post," use that as an example, could be anybody else. today president bush said saddam hughes and is working with al qaeda. he is here, this is the story, and they quote an unnamed analyst because they can't speak openly, who would say we have no evidence to back this up. >> and i would seize on that. >> you would seize on it, put on a show if you have a show at the time. but the general thrust of the matter is you worked in congress, you know that a lot of congressmen and senators don't get past the headlines, we should take what bush says with more weight. the thrust of the story should have been president bush said something, contradicted by his own government and that should have been the lead, the fact he was saying something that wasn't proven. again and again and again. colin powell, that speech he gave february 5th, 2003, everyone remembers that, you know -- >> swayed a lot of people. >> swayed a
're nostalgic, until even a bush -- what happened that they're so far right that the republican party has no sense of what the mainstream is concerned about? >> this is one of those problems when you don't have a clear leader. when there was president bush, he never got credit from liberals at the time, but he was keeping a lid on this stuff. bush was a believer in a lot of kemp. his passion in addition to conservativism was derived from kemp. without that, first there were no leaders and you just had the tea party movement rising up and and then a lot of these leaders are in the conservative house district mostly. so you end up without someone to lead them and say, look, i talked to people outside our group, and these certain things are deal-breakers for them. i know it sounds great when you're talking to each other, but pre-bus did address this a little bit. he talked at the i had logical cul-de-sac that republicans were driving around in where they never stopped to hear what other people were thinking. so it's important to go to these groups and go, why don't you tell me why you aren't
retroactively. and george bush and dick cheney and condoleezza rice are still around. in terms of how we get right with this as a country, the accountability can't just be personal about the decision makers. it has to be about telling the story honestly about what happened so that they, like nixon, don't get away with it in the long run the way they got away with it in the short run, so we tell the story correctly and honestly, so it's not dismissed as a conspiracy theory by generations hence by americans who can't believe something this evil would happen in our country. it did. we need to teach it that way and learn it that way if we want to have any hope of it not happening again. in american politics there were plenty of democrats who went with the iraq war ten years ago, who believed it, and made it more convincing by virtue of their democratic endorsement. on the democratic side that at least as since become a source of shame. it's a strike against you in democratic politics. it's part of the reason we have a president named president obama who was not part of that mess and not hillary
. another terrible day in baghdad. the anniversary of george bush's announcement that america was at war with iraq. 55 people killed. more than 200 wounded. very hard to see that there is anything but chronic instability and continued hideous bloodshed there. what is your take? >> it's such a tragedy really the way things have unfolded in iraq. just looking at iraqi faces, seeing how pale they had become. we are hearing after one attack after another. people's voices actually began trembling. this is violence that, first of all, the iraqis never even imagined would end up being the outcome of america's war in iraq. so many of them hoped and dreamed they would have true freedom, democracy, that their horizons would be open. they have dealt with everything, all of the violence that wrecked this country over the past ten years. to be reminded of it again on the tenth anniversary shocked people and completely and totally devastated them, piers. >> it comes of course as the crisis in syria reaches what could be a tipping point where there are reports that president assad, although still uncon
couple of years? especially as you have folks like jeb bush and chris christie. trying to move the country to more moderate and progressive in the lower-case "p" sense of the word. >> in covering ron paul, who of course rand paul is going to inherit the energy and enthusiasm from ron paul, you saw the biggest crowds, the most diverse crowds and the youngest crowds. that's what rand paul is going to capitalize on. should he run and it looks like he will run. i think over the last months and weeks you've seen obviously a split between the establishment and the tea party folks. rubio can't decide which one he is. rand paul, however, is very, i think solid and comfortable with his brand and who he is. it's part of ron paul, he's modified a little bit in terms of foreign affairs and international affairs. but i think he is a comer and folks in the republican party i talk to really like him. they think he's the person who can really intellectualize a tea party in the way that ron paul couldn't. he was a little meandering on the stump. they like what they see in terms of rand paul. an
, too many on the right still don't get it. ten years ago tonight president bush announced the u.s. had started bombing iraq. he did this despite the millions of us who marched in the streets demanding that he stop beating the drums of war. the bush administration sold the war using the worst kinds of falsehoods and fearmongering. >> but we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud. >> the checks alleged that the attacker met in prague with a senior iraqi intelligence official. >> iraq recently sought significant quantities of uranium from africa. >> bush and his crew misled america about virtually every aspect of this war. >> my belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators. >> we're dealing with a country that can really finance its own reconstruction and relatively soon. >> in the battle of iraq, the united states and our allies have prevailed. >> mission accomplished turned into a national tragedy. with unimaginable costs. nearly 4,500 americans were killed in the war. over 32,000 americans were wounded. left maimed or crippled by bush's war. in 2002 before the war be
:16:00 p.m. eastern, president bush addressed the nation from the oval office. >> my fellow citizens. at this hour, american coalition forces are in the early stage of military operations to disarm iraq, free its people and defend the world from great danger. >> bret: since that time, 1.5 million american troops served inside iraq. nearly 4 ,500 were killed there. more than 32,000 american troops were wounded in iraq. more than 100 iraqis died in the fighting. more than a year after american troops left iraq is still bloody battlefield. today, as we said, series of apparently coordinated bombings. death toll is 65. could still rise. david is an international lawyer with the d.c. firm patton boggs and used to be head of the rule of law for the state department inside baghdad. he returned there this week to work on investment project and really spent the day trying to stay safe. he joins us now by phone live in baghdad after leaving his hotel due to the danger of the bombing attacks. dave, thank you for joining us. what can you tell us about today? >> thanks, bret. the ten-year anniver
priebus is standing by live this hour. >>> ten years after the invasion of iraq, a bush white house insider is here to reveal the secrets of how america was spun into war. >>> and from gop power broker to cable news kingmaker, a new book pulls back the veil on the controversial fox news boss, roger. we want to welcome our viewers from the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> in an extraordinary look inward, republicans think they figured out what went wrong back in november. dissecting the election defeat, the gop has found that it is viewed as narrow-minded, out of touch, and full of stuffy old men. one calls for major changes in style and strategy, but how do they go about repairing a deeply divided party? cnn's brianna keilar is here in "the situation room," and she's taking a closer look at this report and fascinating material inside. >> fascinating material inside, and one of the things we're seeing in the republican party, what it's planning to do, is invest some serious money to build the republican brand in areas that are
's talking points memo. it was 10 years ago that president bush launched an attack on iraq. >> operation iraqi freedom has begun and the pentagon says saddam hussein's days are numbered. i'm shepard smith. this is the fox report on fox news channel and tonight on fox stations from coast to coast. bombs and crews mistles rained down on baghdad for a second night in a row. and saddam's main presidential palace taking a direct hit. saddamecess saddam hussein's family home got hit as well. >> bill: that marked eight long years of conflict in iraq. almost 4500 americans dead. more than 32,000 wounded. almost a trillion dollars spent. was it worth it? many liberals say no. some conservatives say yes. the "wall street journal" today supporting the war in iraq on its editorial page. of course, the "new york times" thinks it was foolish. no matter what you think. the iraq war has changed america. we now have a 17 trillion-dollar debt. and obviously iraq contributed to that we also have thousands of wounded warriors. the country must take care of. and we have an ideological battle over how to deal
, that it was dysfunctional, a reprisal of liberals and what they have seen as excessive conservativism in the bush era and back and forth, and a dysfunctional agency. so there are other people who are less controversial and as i say would share mr. perez's views. and picking perez is sort of like what they did with chuck hagel. they could have found someone who shared chuck hagel's point ever view who wouldn't have been as controversial as mr. hagel. >> megyn: and the ig's report found mr. perez, that he misled investigators on the new black panther case that it was not intentional, that he should have done his homework, but not that he knowingly lied. that was the ig conclusion. however, they did back up the allegation that there is a racial hostility when it comes to enforces the civil rights laws equally where the defendant in the case is black and the victim in the case is white, that there's a racial hostility within the doj when it comes to those cases and that in fact that exists under mr. perez's civil rights division, as it did prior in the bush administration. is it not less controversial th

talking to president bush 41 to ask him is he worried about the future of the republican party. he said look in 1992 after he lost, it took a while for republicans to get their footing but they did after two or three years. they come back in 1994, win big time. same thing in 2010. unshaky. clinton wins again in '96. come back and the republicans have the white house for eight years. there is something in this report that is interesting and bears a discussion on both sides, repeal of the mccain-feinstei-feingold law. it's intention of good but it hurts both to not spend money in the state. >> eric: bob, you must love that. the far right shooting to the center right and center right at the far right all weekend long. >> bob: i don't think priebus came up with off the top of his head. this is based on polling data. there is some truth to what some of the criticisms are. all you have to do is thereon cpac and you could not miss tuitions taking place in the conservative party. not the least of which is for years, national security has been the underpipping of the conservative republican -- u
of strong yet benevolent peace keeper. >> there were even members of president bush's own party who broke ranks. former national security adviser wrote an article called "don't attack saddam." there were some republican lawmakers as well. >> we have to remember we have been allies of saddam hussein. we say we know he has certain things, well, we do because we helped provide for them. i mean, we were his ally. >> it's good to -- today is to remember the warnings of u.n. weapons inspector hans blitz. it's a day to acknowledge the admonitions of leaders like general anthony zeni. eric shen who was forced into retirement when he disagreed with the bush cheny strategy. if we are truly remembering what it was like ten years ago today, we can't forget the millions of voices who opposed this war and attempts made to marginalize them. if you were a public figure, it was not a wise time to speak out against the administration. actress jeanne was called an iraqi sympathizer. >> saddam must love you and i'm sure -- >> don't even try and do that -- i'm not a saddam hussein apoll gist -- i don't think

on the start of the iraq war. the bush administration insisted saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. we were told to be prepared for the worst. and we were. we've been given these backpacks with a lot of protective gear. among other things, in case of the worst case scenario obviously we have a gas mask. we've all been trained how to use it just in case. small chance there is that kind of chemical or biological warfare. we reached for those backpacks after the war started. we had a big scare when an iraqi scud like missile landed in a kuwait city mall. about a mile or so from the hotel balcony where i was anchoring cnn's coverage. our chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta immediately and very courageously left the hotel for the mall. wearing his protective gear including a gas mask. within minutes he was reporting from the scene. >> despite the fact that a missile actually did land very close there doesn't seem to be a sense of panic around here. >> during that attack we were all urged to go down into a sealed bunker. i decided to stay on the air and report on the dramatic de
people needed to keep more money. why did george bush have a massive experiment in getting rich people back their money only to see the economy falling apart. you're not winning on those issues, either, john. >> joan, you're so right. you are better on this than i am normally. equal pay for equal women. your party has been slow on that. >> i agree. i'm following our party. those are the changes that we should be making. here's what the real difference between the two parties in my opinion are. >> okay. >> the republican party has always said we're going to make sure you have opportunity that leads to unlimited success but not guaranteed success. that was the american dream. we've given that up because people say it's not attainable anymore and the democrats are selling we will give you guaranteed success but it's going to be very limited. >> who says that? >> no one guarantees success. >> find -- >> it's the governmental -- >> john, i don't know any >> there's no one who wants to guarantee success. >> i've never heard that anywhere. >> no, it's all about equal opportunity. we are about

, this is -- part of her problem was also that she is old news in the sense that clintons and bushes alike, just ask jeb bush, these are names that people have been talking about for over 20 years. and there's a real sense out there on both sides of the aisle that it's time for a change. i also think, look, historically the idea that a presidential, that a party can hold on to the white house for three terms in a row is very, very rare, it's very difficult, and the idea that hillary clinton is the woman who can do that i find a little unlikely. i don't think barack obama's popularity transfers to her. if you watch that "60 minutes" interview with hillary clinton and barack obama, you could see why barack obama is more popular than hillary clinton as a politician, because he's a much more dynamic and engaging personality, and hillary just did not seem like she was a particularly interesting person or exciting person to listen to or follow. jon: "the washington post" is out with a poll on gay marriage that is kind of an outlier. the fox news poll and other polls taken til now have said the country is

/11, the congress enacted, and then president bush sign into law, the patriot act, and among many other changes to the law it authorized fbi agents, on their own, to serve search warrants or subpoenas on custodians of information. so a telephone company, computer provider. a hospital, lawyer, doctor. having someone else's information. they call that search warrant, which goes around the fourth amendment, which requires that only judges sign search warrants -- they call those search warrants national security letters. so when the fbi comes calling to your or my server, says here's a letter. we want shepard smith's record, they also can't tell anyone because the statute makes it a crime for the recipient of the letters to tell anybody. that's the part that was ruled unconstitutional by the federal judge in california on friday. because that runs up against something called the first amendment, which says, congress shall make no law infringing the freedom of speech. so how could congress make it a crime for people to talk about the government seizing private information without going to judges fir
george w. bush being unpatriotic, the debt was 9 trillion. so something has gone awry, and hope any we don't see a g.o.p. leadership up there in the house, especially, that is starting to take the baby stepped back because we do have this debt ceiling vote coming up soon. we have to stop the spending -- >> neil: you used to work there, and i always think there's a method to all madness, and i think that someone there, within the ranks of the party establish; must be saying, we can't agreg aggressively push this because maybe in and of itself, pushing the idea of immediately attacking the debt and we don't, immediately backfires on us. >> i'll go bark the words of the former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mullen who said our debt is the most critical national security crisis of the country. that it is coming from the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. i believe everybody else in washington, dc would get onboard. you would not think that something such as that financial matter would have something to do with national security but it does you. look at what its going on with the
was unconscionable what bush had done but enough it's fine and we don't have a problem. this democratic budget presented by the house is a joke. the thought of increasing stimulus spending 2.200 billion. solyndra wasn't have no. the -- it is this government's notion that we want to constrain economic growth by continuing to grow the size and scope of the federal government. this would not even balance the budget until something like 2045, and even then wouldn't do it in ten years we would be spending 70% of gdp on public debt. >> neil: i'm going to give the benefit of the doubt to people who can't understand money. money in and my out. that's fine. and we don't have a great spending problem. so, status quo. but we're adding more spending. we're looking at $200 million more among house democrats, $100 million among senate democrats, as if this problem doesn't exist. then we're saying, clearly emboldened by leadership to say, balancing the budget in ten years, it's not the end all be all. >> here's where we might part company. i don't see where republicans doing anything to stop that when you ha
